b. Percent of Sales is a simple method that accepts all costs to the company is variable and shown as a percentage to sales. However, actually costs are both fixed and variable. The Pessimistic situation shows with a lower level of sales that expenses and costs will be lower based on costs being a percentage of sales.

However, the truth is that some cost will not decrease because those costs are fixed and not variable. When sales are higher in the optimistic and most likely situations, all costs are higher based on the variableness of the expenses. This method or outline results in understating cost in the pessimistic while over stating profits, and opposite in the optimistic situation and most likely.

4. NPV – 15 points
Calculate the net present value (NPV) for the following 20 year projects. Comment on the acceptability of each. Assume that the firm has an opportunity cost of 14%. a. Initial investment is \$10,000; cash inflows are \$2,000 per year NPV = PV – Initial Investment

N = 20, I = 14% , PMT = \$2000
